Alcohol and drug addiction is not only a disorder, it's a disease. Many who are suffering from chemical dependency also suffer from mental illness. Alcohol Treatment Orlando has introduced a brand new method of combating addiction by focusing on the mental rehabilitation of its patients. This type of therapy is called dual diagnosis and it is becoming very popular because of its effectiveness.
"Many of our patients suffer from mental disorders such as schizophrenia and bi-polar disease," said treatment specialists Eric W. “Dual diagnosis has separated us from other facilities in Central Florida and throughout the state.”
Dual diagnosis places a heavy emphasis on treating the mental disorders that can trigger addiction. The facility currently employs some of the most renowned experts on mental illness in Central Florida. Among them is Eric, one of Alcohol Treatment Orlando’s many trained staff members.
“Using the power of the mind to treat chemical dependency has been largely ignored by conventional rehab therapy,” Eric said. “Our facility not only provides a comfortable atmosphere, we are also staffed with some of the most renowned addiction counselors in the field.”
The results haven’t gone unnoticed. Hundreds of patients who entered Alcohol Treatment Orlando since it opened have successfully completed the dual diagnosis program and have gone on to productive careers.
“We’re the first rehabilitation clinic in the state to use this method,” Eric said. “It’s proven to be a very effective method of controlling addiction.”
But it’s important to note, dual diagnosis is not a cure, nor is it for everybody. All patients who enter the facility are required to undergo a strict mental examination. Once a person has been evaluated as an addict, they must spend at least eight months of intense counseling. But the rewards can be life changing. Thanks to the latest in addiction treatment, Alcohol Treatment Orlando can help anyone get sober.
“Addiction had cost me my job, my marriage and most of my life savings,” said former patient Josh H. “I’ll always be an addict. But I’m no longer a prisoner of my demons. The staff at Alcohol Treatment Orlando helped me get back on my feet. I’m back to work and I’ve been able to control my bi-polar disorder.”
